Why do we age when we get older? Epigenetics may hold the answer – but could it one day help us turn back the clock? Professor Wolf Reik from the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge and Dr Oliver Stegle from the European Bioinformatics Institute look at the ‘epigenetic clock’ in The Conversation.
With inequalities set to get worse, it’s time to take radical action, says Jaideep Prabhu, Director of Centre for India & Global Business, Cambridge Judge Business School, writing for The Conversation. Could the answer lie in the ‘frugal revolution’ that is already under way?

In recent years, tsunamis have devastated coastal regions. Writing in The Conversation, Camilla Penney, PhD Candidate in Geophysics at University of Cambridge, looks at the risks faced by Gulf states and what can be done to mitigate them.
Brexit won't be the first time Britain has left Europe, says Simon Redfern, professor in Earth Sciences at University of Cambridge writing for The Conversation. Almost half a million years ago we experienced a catastrophic separation.
Saudi Arabia is seeking to strengthen its commercial links with South-east's fast-growing economies. What makes this such an attractive offer - and are there any downsides? asks Babak Mohammadzadeh (Politics and International Studies) writing for The Conversation.
The media are quick to criticise humanitarian organisations as inefficient and expensive, writes Corinna Frey (Cambridge Judge Business School), in The Conversation, but we should remember the extremely challenging work they do.
